Meatloaf is a topic of controversy in my household. I like mine moist and with a slather of tomato based sauce. My husband likes it firm and naked (no sauce). It’s not that his version is awful—it is delicious, but not what I grew up with.
In fact, at the beginning of our marriage, we had a meatloaf cook-off one night for dinner. We both made our own and after tasting each other’s creation, I tossed mine aside and ate his. Mine was a bit too wet and had too much tomato sauce. In my humble defense, I was a novice meatloaf maker. But then, so was he…regretfully, his meatloaf won fair and square.
One meatloaf I now make that my husband really likes is the one pictured here. A fan of cheese, he loves the gooey mozzarella tunnel. Additionally, the texture of the meat and the marinara sauce work for him as well. Not only does he like it, he REALLY likes it. Vindication for me!
